After the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in Beijing, Canada will turn international headlines from Saturday when the 2022 Women’s World Curling Championships in Prince George begins.

From March 19 to 27, 2022, Silvana Tirinzoni (skip), Alina Patz, Esther Neuenschwander, Melanie Barbezat and Carol Howald (optional) will try to win a third consecutive world title for Switzerland.

Originally, Prince George should have hosted the Women’s World Cup in March 2020. Due to the situation known at the time, the event was one of the first sporting events to be cancelled. Two years later, the 42nd Women’s World Championship returned to the Canadian province of British Columbia.

While chasing the title, 13 countries are fighting for the title at the CN Centre. The Swiss team, led by Silvana Tirinzoni, travels to North America as co-favorites and defending champions. In 2019 in Silkeborg (DEN) and in 2021 in Calgary (CAN), Tirinzoni and his teammates won the world title. For the Aarau team, this is already the third participation in the World Championship in this promising team group.

The participating countries are: Canada, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Norway, Scotland, Sweden, Turkey, the United States, Switzerland, and the Czech Republic, moving to Excluded Russia.

Switzerland will play 12 round robin matches at the start of the World Cup. The ranking list determines the six best teams. The first and second placed countries go directly to the semi-finals.

The qualifying matches (3v6 and 4v5) for the teams ranked 3rd to 6th will take place on Saturday 26 March. The semi-final matches will be played on Sunday night. The bronze medal match and the gold medal final will be held on Sunday 27 March.

The full schedule of the broadcast of the Games is not yet known. It will be published on the website www.worldcurling.org/broadcasts/ in the next few days. The games are expected to be shown on the online video platform Recast.
